The NNUH is now a member of the Veterans Covenant Hospital Alliance (VCHA). The VCHA is a network of over 20 NHS hospitals that have volunteered to share and drive the implementation of best practice in NHS care for people who serve or have served in the UK armed forces and their families, in line with the Armed Forces Covenant.
As a VCHA member:
• We will strive to be an exemplar of the best care for veterans and their families.
• We will encourage all patients to let us know if they have ever served in the UK armed forces so that we can best support their care needs.
• We are committed to learning from our patients and their families to improve quality of care
As a Veteran Aware hospital we also support the employment of veterans and reservists in our workforce and have received the Gold award for participation in the ‘Step Into Health’ scheme.
Veterans Norfolk is a charity which brings together all Norfolk’s charities to support armed forces and veteran communities. To find out more, go to: https://www.veteransnorfolk.com/
